Identity Clubs

These are clubs based on a shared identity.


This club seeks to promote Asian culture, consolidating Asians and other students, and providing guidance and direction to new members to the college's environment. We host several events during the year: Chinese New Year, Thai Bubble Tea Sale, trips, local hiking, and others depending on our members and their cultural backgrounds. We combined our club with the International Students in 2015-16 and were nominated for Club of the Year! Join us for another great year!

See International Club for information.

The purpose of this club is to acquaint those interested with the tenets of the Baha'i faith, by sponsoring lectures, information tables, service projects, discussions, informal gatherings, social activities, and public meetings. This association has no political affiliations on a campus levels or otherwise.

The Campus Ministry is a group of HCC students and staff who have a desire to create Christian fellowship, come together for prayer, and spread the teachings of Jesus. Everyone is welcome. This group creates activities, holiday celebrations, and other events based on its members and their beliefs.

Our mission is to teach society the reality behind the "latino" stereotypes; to learn by supporting other clubs and participating in HCC's activities and events; and to unite people because we believe in teamwork. When you join LISA, you become part of our family. We are focusing this year on the Latin Heritage Film Festival, Expo Latino, and fundraising to travel to Puerto Rico.

TransCampus is a campus advocacy group (comprised of students, faculty, and staff) committed to creating and fostering an open and inclusive campus community for individuals who are transgender/gender queer/questioning. We've been active at HCC since 2007, and are still going strong!

Although we are not technically a club, we are a great support system for anyone identifying as trans, as well as allies. We are proud to offer many safe spaces on campus, and include gender identity in our mission statement and non-discrimination policy. For more information about HCC and how we serve transgender individuals, please contact us!
